Homelessness: What Can Be Done?

A Conversation with CASA & WPC Members

Wednesday, March 20, 7:00pm, Room 105/Zoom

CASA is a nonprofit working to end homelessness in Durham, Wake, and Orange Counties. For 32 years, CASA has provided a home to our community’s lowest-income citizens through their affordable rental housing. Their permanent, affordable housing provides folks in need with a door that locks, a warm bed, and a space for healing. At this event, we’ll hear about Bryan Place, named in honor of WPC’s own Nancye Bryan – a 16-unit community opening this month on North Duke Street in Durham. Join us to learn more about CASA’s work to end homelessness in our community.
